Ok lets get started, this is what you will need.

1. Turkey (biggest one you can buy, mine was 22lbs)
2. Chicken (biggest one you can get)
3. Duck (not in photo, did not want to cause cross contamination by having the raw birds touching, Also the duck is going to cost you more than the turkey so get ready to pay some $$)
4. Quail (I wanted to get all the birds I could in this)
6. Turkey oven bag (it will fit with some finessing, this is going to be a big bird when we are done)
7. Pan to hold the birds in
8. Oven
9. Large METAL coffee can (biggest you can get) to catch all of the bacon grease before you pull the birds out of the oven

I could have tried to get a goose and other birds, but I live in the U.S  (west coast) and those birds are not sold in my stores, you can get them sold/shipped to you online but that gets expensive. You can also google for a Ostrich if you want to go EpicMealtime on this instructable, once again that will cost you some major $$.

Step 2:

now for the fun part, make sure that all of your birds are fully defrosted and thawed out and clean all of the gut bags out, rinse, and let (or paper towel) dry. You want to start with the smallest bird (for me, this was the Quail) and start to wrap/weave it with your Bacon. As you can see my bacon weaving skills are not that great. Maybe I should look on here if they have a instructable on how to do this.

Now that you have your smallest bird (Quail) Fully wrapped in bacon grab your next smallest bird (for me it was the Duck) and shove the bacon wrapped Quail into the empty cavity of the Duck.

this isnt a true turducken, you need to debone the turkey and completely remove the bones from the rest of the birds, Otherwise this is awesome.
